Brooke originally committed to Syracuse University for Softball. Like many students, she had to choose her major over athletics due to the time commitment and lack of educational support. Brooke isn't alone in this conflict. This issue has been brought to student association several times. Our app mitigates the scheduling conflict by allowing tutors to be accessed on demand, 24/7.
What it does
Pencil Meets Paper connects students to tutors who have taken the class at their university. Recommended tutors are based on availability and reviews.
How we built it
We used Sketch to outline the application platform. We used squarespace to build a supporting website.
Challenges we ran into
75% of our group came in without hack-a-thon experience. None of us have a strong app development background.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Despite our limited prior experience, we developed a functional website and app platform.
